    Any opinions on the Certina DS-2 and the other Quartz "precidrive" chronographs?

    I've been on a Certina kick lately. Just bought the DS action diver auto, and have been eyeing up another to add to the collection. I haven't found many reviews on the DS-2 Chrono and some of the other Certina Precidrive chronographs and am looking for some opinions and suggestions. I've always been into autos and the idea of spending in the $500 range for a Quartz watch really has me confused and hoping that I don't regret my purchase. I know that Quartz watches are wonderful and are very popular amongst watch enthusiasts but I'm sure some of you can understand where I'm coming from. I guess I just need help getting over my "auto" snobbery, for lack of a better term. That said I absolutely love the design of these watches. I don't usually spend over $1000 for a watch at a time. I just can't afford to have multiples if I spend more than that and I would rather have several nice watches than one really nice watch. I'm also open to suggestions if anyone has anything else in that $500 range that may be in that same style. I would really like to hear opinions on these precidrive chronos though if anyone here owns or has owned one.

    The Precidrive watches are often discussed in the HAQ forum. Plenty of reading in this thread:

    Thanks GlennO. I actually completely forgot we even had the HAQ section here. See how wrapped up in autos I've been. Lol
